SJM’s exhibition booth featured a luxurious accommodation experience from its flagship properties, the Grand Lisboa Palace Resort Macau (“Grand Lisboa Palace”) and Grand Lisboa Hotel (“Grand Lisboa”). The booth showcased global cuisine, spa and wellness facilities, expansive shopping centres, and versatile convention spaces. The booth attracted numerous Malaysian residents and tourists, offering them a taste of the unique blend of classic and modern, Eastern and Western cultures. SJM’s mascot, “Sam the Rooster” also made an appearance interacting with attendees, adding to the lively atmosphere.
On the first day of the roadshow, SJM participated in the “Macao Tourism Seminar and Macao & Malaysia Travel Trade Mini Mart” hosted by MGTO.

Through these interactions, SJM sought to forge valuable partnerships and strategize for global market expansion.
SJM also showcased its globally acclaimed culinary offers, including two upcoming gastronomic extravaganzas.
